Our Old Red Barn

I see a barn in back of our house
where as a child I used to play
I see us climbing up in the loft
sometimes chasing the chickens away.

We'd get tired in the late afternoon
so we'd rest in the hay for a while .
Mama would bring us lemonade
with cookies and a smile.

I see the animals waiting outside
Ralph, our pig and Old Maggie, the cow
We never got bored, just had simple fun
-had never heard of "electronic toys" anyhow

We'd climb the trees and wade the creek
-jump in leaves piled high in the fall
It may have been simple and may have been corny
but what sweet memories I recall.

With the shadows of dusk and Mama calling
We knew that our playtime was done
but I'll never forget the old red barn
and the old fashioned, innocent fun.
